Tan leather is having a moment this season. Strapless dresses at Gucci, classic low-heeled boots and soft clutch bags at Kurt Geiger... we're on a hiding to the Seventies. But it's not just fashion that's channelling the carefree vintage vibe. Interiors are awash with the rich, warm hue, too. Start small with a cute Hippo doorstop by Zuny or go for all-out decadence with leather floor tiles from De Ferranti. For a touch of nostalgic glamour, Bo Concept's Istra sofa or Philippe Starck's Lou Reed chair will get you into the groove.
